Lee Lee's Valise - Plus Size Boutique in Brooklyn!
At the opening of a fab new plus size boutique in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn last weekend, I realized I, your own Lisafashionista, had NEVER BEEN TO A PLUS SIZE BOUTIQUE! I've been to Torrid, Lane Bryant et al. But a boutique? Nope! Because there are NONE in NYC! (Ok, so there is like half of one, a store that sells muumuus and big jewlery somewhere on the upper west side, but that doesn't count!).

The store I am talking about is called Lee Lee's Valise and is run by the fabulous Lisa Dolan, a big girl with a big dream. She gutted a busted laundromat and carved out a gorgeous boutique full of the best plus size fashions. She is stocking a number of incredible lines, including Svoboda, Abby Z, Kiyonna, Igigi, Fashion Overdose, B&Lu, Size Appeal, C.enne.V and lots more!!!

She is also selling plus size thongs from Hanky Panky, beautiful jewelry, purses, large size bras, and course, more than anything - she is selling a feeling - of having the right and privledge to shop in a store that sells your size!

Here are a few of the items I saw in the store:

Top Row:
(L)- Kiyonna Lace Top
(R)- Size Appeal Butterfly Top

Bottom Row:
(L) - Fashion Overdoze Halter
(R)- Kiyonna Colorblock Tee

Visit Lee Lee's Valise:
368 Court Street (at the corner of President St)
Take the F or G train to Carroll Street Station and walk 1 block

Call 718-246-LEES for more info

I might just see you there!

    Spent 3 1/2 hours there yesterday. Not only was the store chock full of great clothes for all plus-size body types, but the staff is incredible. The husband and wife team are so friendly and helpful. The shop is really trendy-looking just like the other shops in the neighborhood (which is fantastic, by the way - for you non-Brooklynites). I had a blast and met amazing women who were all really supportive of one another. I bought dressees, tops, bras and jewelry to die for! My husband was so excited because I finally got some really sexy and feminine pieces that actually fit me. I felt like I was welcomed in by old friends and I can't wait to go back there! This place is not to be missed!
